Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl draws obvious comparisons to Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. series, and rightly so. It pulls heavy inspiration from Nintendo's classic by assembling a cast of beloved characters and pitting them against one another in a platform fighting game. We only received the game a few hours before release, so I'm not ready to render a final verdict. However, my initial hours with developers Ludocity and Fair Play Labs' fighter impress me. While it lacks some crucial components I expect form this kind of fighter, I'm having a lot of fun so far.

All-Star Brawl has a fun cast, with representatives span decades of Nicktoons. From Ren and Stimpy to Spongebob Squarepants to newer Nick faces like the Ninja Turtles, or Lincoln and Lucy Loud, there's a wide range of characters. Every one of them looks nice, has a unique playstyle, and comes packed full of references from their show. I have no qualms with the current selection of All-Stars, though I'm excited for who might come down the road in the form of DLC.

Controls are similar to Smash Bros but have an additional button to separate your regular attacks into light and strong attacks. This eliminates the chance to execute the wrong attack, which sometimes happens in Nintendo's Smash series with Smash attacks and tilts. Outside of that, there's nothing brand new besides a strafe button that allows your character to face a single direction no matter where opponents are located. This detail is minor to me, but I'd expect this to play a more significant role for those who are into playing at a higher competitive level.

Characters move quickly; players used to Smash Bros. Melee might feel at home with Nick Brawl's speed. My main concern going in was whether I felt in control of the characters at all times, and I'm happy to say, the controls are snappy and responsive. I rarely feel like I'm not in control of my chosen Nicktoon. More advanced techniques are easy to pull off. For example, wavedashing is a skill I've always had trouble with in similar games, but I have found ways to incorporate it into my strategies after only a few short hours. Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised and happy with navigating stages and the feel of the fights.

Where I find Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl falls short is in its game modes and lack of extras. Players have the choice of local and online multiplayer – with up to four players supported when not in a competitive mode, training mode, or playing through a handful of 1v1 arcade matches. While the crux of a game like this should be multiplayer modes, it's missing a fun element from games like Smash, and that's items to use in fights. Nick Brawl lacks that party feel where anything can happen and anyone can win regardless of skill. Don't get me wrong; I've had a blast from bell to bell, but stages and fights feel sterile without bombs, swords, or other weaponry to make a match more dynamic and unpredictable.

Music and sound effects were a concern after learning of the lack of licensed tunes or voice acting. When it comes to voices, I honestly haven't missed them. Plenty happens during a fight that I don't think Spongbob's grating laughter or Oblina calling out moves would add much, but some of the sound effects fall flat and aren't impactful. Music is very hit or miss. The composers have had to create songs inspired by the shows, and some are absolute jams like those in the Hey Arnold or Avatar stages, but those like the Spongebob Glove World theme get tiresome quickly.

There's still some more I want to test out before giving Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl a final score. I'll be diving more into testing the online play, which felt great from the couple of matches I squeezed in. There's also about half of the cast to try and learn, so expect a verdict on Nick Brawl later in the week. For right now, I'd recommend it to those who love the Nickelodeon catalog, want another game like Smash, or like competing in a platform fighter.

     Nw6mwntqLemnis Gate from Canadian developer Ratloop Games reimagines the move-counter-move approach to turn-based combat as a free-flowing first-person shooter with time loop mechanics, set in colorful arenas across the galaxy. It's a tough game, but that only makes it all the more rewarding when you're able to eke out a victory. If you've ever played a simple party game like Connect Four or Monopoly then you're probably familiar with the turn-based genre. One of two (or more) players makes a move, and another player moves to counter that move or advance toward their own goal. The most popular version of this formula is chess, where equally balanced black and white pieces face off in a square arena on an eight-by-eight grid. Each piece has a specific purpose, with the end goal of each player being to eliminate the opposing player's pieces and force a "checkmate," claiming their king.   Popular games like Advance Wars and Into The Breach stick t...

MMORPGs are complex and evolving beasts. Even with over 100 hours played and a level 50+ character, I still haven't arrived at the endgame yet. Every MMORPG is different in terms of character activities for max-level characters as they continue to try to progress past the cap. Speaking with Amazon Games' game design manager Michael Willette, creative director David Verfaillie, and gameplay design manager David Hall, a picture of the core pillars of the endgame appears. While I'm not there just yet, I'm eager to continue plodding along through a world of blueberry farming, leather refinement, and chopping down cool-looking trees.

The first element that makes up endgame play is gear hunting. Not an uncommon endgame pursuit, because of how gear can roll in New World, finding a perfect piece with the exact modifiers you're looking for can take some serious time. For instance, even in the mid-to-late gear game chase, I'm attempting to use my Azoth resource to hypercharge bags that I make, aiming to get the Extra Pockets modifier that lets me carry significantly more on my character, making hauling back resources easier. 

Tweaking mods, even more, I aim to get other weight reduction mods on carried goods like wood or ore in addition to Extra Pockets, making a new bag a powerful upgrade that allows me to make trips hyperefficient. Right now, I'm only rolling two mods per bag. In the endgame, most items can have three different modifiers and a gem slot that further allows customization options, so finding the perfect piece for each slot will likely take a while – especially since you probably want two different sets of gear at least, one for fighting and one for harvesting. In addition, you may want to forge different sets designed to tackle various types of enemies or encounters.

The second element of the game that I'm already heavily engaged in is territory faction control. While the war on my server is already raging between the three color factions, level 60 players can engage in Outpost Rush matches so they can PvP anytime in an organized fashion without waiting for a war to take off or for open-world PvP to be happening in a specific area in earnest. You can always head outside any city to fight some scrapping, but Outpost Rush lets players engage in team-based 20 vs. 20 PvP anytime once hitting the level cap.

The third is, again, something that players engage with very early but goes possibly the latest, and that's crafting. From becoming the best at crafting potions, keys, weapons, food, or just becoming the best fisherman on the server, that's an option. Level 60 is just one achievement to work on, as there are many crafting and gathering skills to master. These feed into another system players might not engage with until late in the game, depending on their financial situation, and that's housing. 

Players can use housing for both function and flavor, loading them up with adorable pets, powerful trophies that augment your abilities out in the world, and oodles of decorative options. Housing also allows players additional travel options around the world and serious storage space, something that any player has certainly felt the value of as you tirelessly attempt to store your huge stacks of goods. Want to be the coolest person on the server? Enhance your house with various artifacts and styles to raise your peacock rating, making you likely to be the featured house that players see when they walk by.

Many of the other activities that players can jump into in the endgame can be experienced in some fashion on the way to the top, as well. These include dungeon experiences, portal farming (where players run around a zone and close portals with other players by fighting demonic forces), crafting, gathering, questing, and realm-vs-realm PvP.

Interested in New World? Check out my thoughts and impressions on the MMORPG right here. Have you given it a shot? What do you think?

     One of Devolver's best games headlines Humble Choice for October

This month's Humble Choice bundle doesn't have a big triple-A game to anchor the selection, but that doesn't mean there's a lack of quality games this time around. Indie label Devolver has brought one of its finest games to the bundle, alongside some major horror muscle and an excellent tactical take on John Wick.

As ever, the Humble Plan offers a selection of games, and you'll be able to choose a handful to keep depending on your subscription tier. Legacy subscribers have additional options, but the Premium plan ($19.99 USD) lets you keep nine games out of the 12 on offer, while the Basic plan ($14.99 USD) lets you keep three.

The full list of games includes Katana Zero, Amnesia: Rebirth, John Wick Hex, 112 Operator, Guts and Glory, Ring of Pain, Garage: Bad Trip, the Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia, Tools Up, Hiveswap Friendsim, Black Future '88, and Syberia 3. All those games will redeem via Steam.

     Metroidvania FIST: Forged In Shadow Torch is suddenly on Steam, with ray tracing and DLSS

FIST: Forged In Shadow Torch might have one of the sillier backronyms we've seen in a bit, but after its launch on PlayStation platforms last month, it proved to be a solid take on the classic metroidvania formula. Now it's suddenly on PC, with a host of extra graphical features to make the wait worthwhile.

You may have already played FIST on PC in the past thanks to the demo available on Steam, but the PC version finally launched in full over the weekend, about a month removed from its PS4 and PS5 counterpart. The PC version features ray tracing, and Nvidia's DLSS and Reflex tech for improved performance and responsiveness.

If you haven't seen FIST in the past, it's a side-scrolling platformer with an emphasis on melee combat, set in a "dieselpunk" world populated by anthropomorphic animals. The PlayStation versions reviewed pretty well at launch, garnering an average 80 review score, as OpenCritic shows.

The game is looking to give the reigning genre champ, Super Smash Bros., a run for its money. All-Star Brawl features rollback netcode, a functional lobby system, and slick gameplay provided by Ludosity — the creators of another Smash-like game, Slap City.

Established fans and newcomers alike are excited to see if Halo Infinite can live up to all that the Halo franchise stands for. Whether or not it can remains to be seen – we've got a campaign to play this December – but if the game's latest round of multiplayer technical previews is any indication, Halo Infinite's multiplayer is shaping up to be something truly special.

This past weekend, 343 Industries opened the game to Halo Insiders (which is a free program) who own an Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S and some PC players. This meant that two matchmaking-based modes – Social Arena and Big Team Battle – were quick and easy to jump into. I spent the majority of my nearly dozen hours with Halo Infinite in those two modes.


Before jumping into my thoughts on Halo Infinite's multiplayer following this technical preview, I want to mention that Friday night, from about 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., three online buddies and I played custom games in The Master Chief Collection. We played to hang out, but that doubled as a way for me to touch base with a franchise that's about to receive a flashy new entry. The classic Halo games absolutely hold up, but they are significantly slower than any modern FPS and despite how much fun I was having, I was desperate for a way to speed up match pacing (we ended up kicking the movement speed up by about 20 percent).

I continually told my friends I wish those old Halos were faster, smoother, and more strategic. Then I jumped into Halo Infinite and realized Infinite is very much the Halo of old… but faster, smoother, and more strategic.

Launching into the technical preview immediately brought me back – the classic Halo theme kicked in, my Spartan was front and center, and I saw the words Big Team Battle on screen. This mode is everything I had hoped it would be – large battles, vehicular destruction, control points dominated by players hoping to get their hands on a sniper rifle, and of course, that lone wolf who refuses to follow the team effort to capture the flag (okay, I can't lie, this was definitely me a couple of times).

The only map in this mode that I played on, Fragmentation, is reminiscent of Halo 3's Valhalla. It's set on a Halo and specifically in a more natural mountainous terrain. There are two large alien-made structures on both ends of the map and between them sits the pathways you'll take to either grab the lone Overshield, pick up one of the two vehicular requisition drops, or perch high above for easy Battle Rifle kills. Its symmetrical design keeps the playing field even no matter which team you're on, and it allowed my teammates and me to quickly learn the "lanes" to best capture control points, flags, or get some easy Slayer kills.


The weapons on this map included the standard Assault Rifle, the trusty Battle Rifle, an occasional one-shot-kill Skewer, the Bulldog shotgun, and more. To my surprise, Battle Rifles don't dominate the battlefield. I felt at home with one in my Spartan's hands, but when I didn't have it, I still stood a chance. I fell especially in love with the Needler, which is as fun as ever. Waiting for that timed explosion at the end of a round to kill an enemy never gets old, does it?

Visually, I wasn't blown away, but that's not to say the game doesn't look good. It looks great, but it doesn't scream new-gen the way other modern titles do. However, my biggest gripe with the technical preview stems from these visuals. Particularly the graphics of Performance mode, which brings the frames-per-second up to a blistering-fast and buttery-smooth 120fps.

Click image thumbnails to view larger version



Simply put, Halo Infinite looks ugly in Performance mode. The textures take a hit and the game's resolution takes an even bigger one. Each time I gave Infinite's Performance mode another shot, I couldn't play for longer than a few minutes. Its lower graphical fidelity put everything but my Spartan's weapon out of focus.

I'm not the biggest snob in the world when it comes to visuals, but the lack of sharpness in Performance mode versus what I saw in the Graphics mode, which targets a 4K resolution and a frame rate of 60fps, solidified that I'd probably be playing the latter this December. Keep in mind that this technical preview took place on an old build and there's a good chance 343 Industries has already quelled my concerns with Performance mode.

Elsewhere in Big Team Battle, I was enthralled with finding new ways to use the game's equipment pickups. There's what is essentially a deployable shield, a repulsor that can bounce back enemies and grenades dozens of feet, and of course, the grappling hook. The game's marketing showcases the grappling hook quite often but to be honest, it doesn't feel as integral to Halo Infinite as marketing led me to believe, at least in multiplayer.


The grappling hook is not hard to find, but once you die, it's gone. Sure, it can whip you around large swaths of land with ease, and it never stopped feeling amazing to grapple onto a Ghost and hijack it, but thanks to its limited use, it quickly fell into the background of Halo Infinite's excellent gunplay, much like the other pieces of equipment did. While these pickups are useful, they never felt necessary, and that's because they serve to simply compliment the game's already fantastic gunplay.

Infinite's excellent gunplay shines most in the game's Social Arena, which is where you can find smaller matches of Halo classics like Slayer. In this mode's handful of maps, I was surprised with how easy it was to learn the maps, their layouts, and the best lanes to take out enemies with ease. I would have liked a little more visual variety – so far, every map feels like a training ground built for Spartans rather than something you'd encounter in a Halo campaign – but I still had a blast.

The maps make for the frenetic jump-while-you're-shooting-and-don't-forget-to-toss-a-grenade gameplay I've come to associate with Halo for decades, but with the added bonus that I could sprint, mantle up ledges, and ultimately play the game the same way I play every modern FPS.

With nearly a dozen Halo Infinite hours behind me, I'm happy to say that I'm actually (and finally) excited about the game. 343 Industries' first foray into the series with Halo 4 was good. Halo 5 was… not so good, and for that reason, I've remained cautious of Halo Infinite. This weekend's technical preview proved that despite my reservations, this game's multiplayer is in good hands. I only hope the Halo Infinite campaign can match it.

Epic Games has revealed that some of Universal's classic and iconic monsters are coming to Fortnite. 

Epic announced the news today, revealing that the first monstrous icon to join the battle royale will be Frankenstein's Monster. Throughout the month, more monsters will be added to the Item Shop, but Epic only revealed one more that players can expect: the Mummy (no, not the one Brendan Fraser fought, unfortunately). 

The Mummy is special, too, because not only will that skin be available in the Item Shop, but a Mummy will also be lurching on the battle royale island as a character trying to find their way back to the Underworld later this month. 

These monsters are being added to the game as part of this year's Fortnitemares 2021 event, which sees the game transform in a number of ways for the Halloween occasion. Alongside Universal monsters, Fortnitemares 2021 will bring in new Halloween outfits and old ones from previous events. 

While Frankenstein and the Mummy aren't yet available for purchase, the community-inspired Boxy and Boxer skins are in the item shop right now. Each has an alternate Spectral Style version that glows in-game, too. 

Skins aren't the only things coming to Fortnite for the Fortnitemares 2021 event. The Cubes are preparing to take over the island this month, according to Epic. 

"Later in the month, they'll escalate their domination of the island," Epic's Fortnitemares 2021 blog post says. "But take heart! Strengthen your resolve with a new weapon from The Sideways and returning Halloween tricks. A special LTM will be returning as well. During this Cubic chaos, there'll also be Quests to accomplish for eerie rewards." 

During Fortnitemares 2021, the Dual Fiend Hunters pictured below will be available on the map, which should help in the fight against the Cube.

 While waiting for these new Universal Monsters skins to hit the Item Shop, read about why you shouldn't expect Fortnite on Apple devices for years and then check out the Carnage skin that's part of the latest Fortnite season.

     Robin Hood: Sherwood Builders puts city-building in a survival RPG, and the demo's a hit

We're reaching the end of Steam Next Fest, which means your fellow PC gamers have had the chance to see what's good - and judging by what's been topping the charts, it looks like Robin Hood: Sherwood Builders is the surprise hit of the event. It's proven to be a winning combination of RPG games, survival games, and city-building games.

The early bits of the demo play out pretty much like any modern survival adventure - gather some food and resources, and craft your way to new tools. But pretty soon, you'll be putting those resources into a central coffer for your village, then asking your villagers to put together new buildings to expand the settlement.

Eventually, you'll start recruiting new residents, and you can streamline your way past the traditional survival mechanics by robbing convoys for resources. All along the way, you're guided by a dialogue-heavy series of quests featuring characters from the Robin Hood mythos.

     Guardians of the Galaxy is bundled with Nvidia RTX gaming PCs and laptops

So far, Square Enix is holding its cards close to its chest with Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy system requirements, so we can only speculate how taxing it's going to be for your gaming PC. We're hopeful that the barrier to entry won't be too high, considering the game also runs on the Nintendo Switch, but if you feel you might need an upgrade to use all its PC-exclusive tech, Nvidia has you covered by bundling the game with qualifying RTX 3000 desktops and laptops.

It's unlikely you'll be able to make use of Guardians of the Galaxy's support for 8K resolution - and if you can, hats off to you and your gaming monitor - but stepping into Star-Lord's shoes and leading a ragtag band of misfits will look that much better with ray tracing and Nvidia DLSS switched on. For that, you'll need an Nvidia RTX graphics card, which is pretty hard to come by during the ongoing GPU shortage if you don't already pack one.

Should you decide a new prebuilt gaming PC is in order or you fancy taking things on-the-go with a gaming laptop, you can net yourself Guardians of the Galaxy for free in the process. All you need to do is make sure you choose anything packing an entry-level RTX 3060 to enthusiast RTX 3090 and buy from a participating retailer.

     Humble Bundle October Choice 1It's a brand new month, and it's a special month at that. It's spooky season! The month of Halloween comes with ghosts and zombies galore, and a few games in October's Humble Bundle Choice might just give you a fright. Unfortunately, there's not a huge amount of scary games to find in this month's package, but that's OK. Hidden gems like Katana Zero help make October a worthwhile investment, alongside the scary Amnesia: Rebirth. The Humble Bundle is a monthly subscription that offers 12 games to download and keep forever, with new games offered at the beginning of each month. The games are given out as keys for platforms like Steam or Origin. Plus, a portion of all profits go to charity.   A small price to pay Arguably the largest offering this month is Amnesia: Rebirth, a first-person horror adventure where you must survive the Algerian desert and face your past. The game currently has 'Mixed' reviews on Steam, but a strong...

     Back 4 Blood xbox Game Pass pc october 2021My theory of Microsoft announcing the next wave of Game Pass games every week took a bit of a stumble. And that's because the company revealed the first batch of October games, well, today, three weeks after the last announcement. We can't all be winners in the game of life. Still, we now know what's coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC in October 2021. Back 4 Blood was already confirmed along with The Good Life, but we're also getting the horror game Visage — perfect for Halloween scares. There is a surprising lack of really spooky games coming in the early month. Granted, not every game had to lean on horror. Still, two out of eight isn't all that impressive. Regardless, the list is looking fairly good, with at least one major addition. Of course, I'm referring to Back 4 Blood, Turtle Rock Studios' spiritual successor to the immensely popular Left 4 Dead games. It'll be out as a day one release on October 12. Before that, however, w...
